The digital era has changed the ways in which we read and consume information. Our attention span is shorter, and many are now accustomed to scrolling through a wall of text instead of reading it word for word, or even requiring visuals to hold our attention. What roles does typography play in print and digital media? How can typographic means make long-form reading pleasurable?
